Collaborating with Collabro

2 Commentsby Juliette  |  March 18th, 2015  |  Current Projects, Record Producing

Britains Got Talent winners, Collabro have been in the studio all week recording the vocals for their new album with us. The are a great group go guys with a great work ethic; they’ve just finished a long tour but have knuckled down straight away to recording and already produced some lovely vocals despite fighting coughs and colds etc. So I’m glad to say it has been a joy to collaborate with Collabro or even to calibrate and correlate their vocals.
Next up is recording the orchestra and choirs (1 choir is not enough!) before another week of vocals and then it’s off to Copenhagen for mixing in the same studio as we mixed Alfie Boe’s records. Keep eyes peeled for the album in June. More »

Classic Rock

1 Commentby Juliette  |  January 18th, 2015  |  Latest News, Record Producing

5 years ago we produced an album for Universal called Classic Rock; orchestral arrangements of rock anthems. We used rock musicians from Sweden and City of Prague Philharmonic. I know it was 5 years ago as I very clearly remember being fast tracked at Swedish passport control due to being heavily pregnant (with twins) and on crutches. At the time I was terrified they were about to tell me they wouldn’t allow me to fly but I think they were just keen to get me out of the airport and their jurisdiction as quickly as possible.

Christmas Concert

1 Commentby Juliette  |  December 8th, 2014  |  Latest News, Performances, Singing

You know you’re getting old when you find yourself near Christmas fighting the desire to comment about how quick it’s all come round this year blah blah. So I’ve deleted the original start to this blog and will begin with observing that after a long and arduous year we thought would never end, we finally find ourselves with Christmas concerts upon us. We didn’t record any Christmas songs in July like last year so I haven’t minded dusting off our trusty carol songbook this time. More »

Serenata released today

1 Commentby Juliette  |  November 17th, 2014  |  Latest News, Record Producing

Here it is, Alfie’s new Album of Italian songs is out today. We recorded it in April/May this year in the very same studios as the original Band Aid single “Feed the World” which has sadly now been made into a block of luxury apartments so this will be the last album produced there.

My favourite song on the album is Addio, sogni di gloria which means ‘Goodbye, dreams of glory’. We were really pleased with the warmth of the strings on this track and Alfie sang it with real depth of emotion. This great song is truly operatic in melody and emotion and is about an elderly man remembering his hopes for the future when he was a young boy and how he must now say goodbye to those former dreams of glory.

Moroccan Madness

This is a photo of the service station I stopped at to ‘refresh’ halfway through a 4 hour drive though the Atlas Mountains last week. Before you ask, they didn’t sell coffee. I was on my way to work on the set of a film being shot out there, in the same place as Lawrence of Arabia, Gladiator, The Mummy and pretty well any film involving sand in the last few decades. The music we have written  features middle eastern instruments from about 50BC onwards because this is a film about Jesus’ life or rather, despite being called “Killing Jesus “. Rest assured I won’t ruin it for you by telling you what happens!

Turning up at 6pm on my first night shoot, the set looked amazing and much as I struggled to get through the shoots (I don’t know how the crew do it night after night), I won’t forget sunset and sunrise in the desert for a while.  Equally memorable was seeing Frasier as Herod, fantastic casting!

Spirited Scunthorpe

6 Commentsby Juliette  |  September 17th, 2014  |  Latest News, Singing

James and I were up in Scunthorpe with the RPO last weekend giving them the full Last Night of the Proms treatment. What a crowd! The Baths Hall can’t seat more than a thousand but it sounded like there were 10 times that. 3 encores and then James was booed for finally leaving the stage!

Next week the same team is in Lowestoft. We will be entertaining local school children in the afternoon before giving another Prom concert in the evening. Will I be able to sing Rule Britannia or will I have to rewrite the lyric?? More »

Is the picture too large? You couldn’t see the orchestra and teeny tiny James conducting if I posted it any smaller. Symfunny was a huge success. It was a fantastic night, everyone, both performers and audience were incredibly warm and generous and Parkinson’s UK announced that 125k was raised for research into new treatments and that golden ticket, a cure.
